Expect The Unexpected!
Accidents seldom give warning that they’re about to happen. But it’s a fact that most accidents are preventable and avoidable, provided the right safety measures and norms were followed.
Many accidents are a result of someone’s fault or negligence, and car accidents are no exception.
Some of the typical reasons include:
- Impaired/drunken driving
- Distracted driver
- Aggressive/negligent driver
- Road rage
- Failure to obey warning-signs/traffic lights
- Defective/malfunctioning parts
- Elderly/inexperienced driver
- Unfamiliar/rural roads
- Animal crossing
- Poor weather/visibility
- Failure to follow safety norms
Stop the Texts, Stop the Wrecks!
Texting and cellphone use are among the top reasons for distracted driving. Nearly 71% of young people confess that they have texted or answered a call on their phones while driving.
Unfortunately, the consequences have to be borne by innocent victims. They and their families suffer loss of income/wages/earning capacity, high medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, care-giving costs, pain and suffering.
If the injuries are serious and permanent, these costs put an enormous physical, financial and emotional burden on the entire family. A Toronto car accident lawyer understands the crisis, because we deal with such cases exclusively.
How We Can Help
Under Ontario laws, injured victims are entitled to statutory benefits regardless of faults. Your own insurance-company can make the settlement, based on the nature/extent of your injuries.
Additionally, you’re also entitled to file a personal injury suit against those responsible for your accident, preferably with the help of a Toronto personal injury lawyer.
A top rated accident lawyer hired by you has your interests at heart, not those of your insurance-company, which may not always act in good faith.
Often the nature/extent of damage/injuries is not immediately understood. Insurers and claims-adjusters may compel you to make a quick settlement, which later turns out to be completely inadequate. Our 24 hour injury lawyers ensure that your rights are protected.
Dealing with the paperwork from a hospital-bed can be frustrating, annoying and difficult. Contact the nearest personal injury lawyer in Toronto to ensure that you don’t miss filing deadlines, formats and venues. We help you present a claim backed by robust evidence so that you get your justly-deserved settlement.
